DPO stands for Defects Per Opportunity, while DPMO refers to Defects Per Million Opportunities. These are a few of the key metrics used to measure whether or not an organization has reached a specific Sigma Level. Six Sigma refers to 3.4 DPMO or less, meaning products or services produced by an organization are 99.99966% defect free.
The DPO and DPMO Calculator provides a tool to estimate the DPO rate and DPMO rate of any process or system within your organization.
Description of DPO and DPMO Calculator
The DPO Calculator measures total defects divided by total opportunities. The number of defects is divided by the total number of products, opportunities or completed tasks during a set period of time. For instance, If there are 50 defects in every 1,000 units of a specific product produced, that would mean the DPU is 50 divided by 1,000, leading to a DPO of 0.05 (or 5%). The DPMO Calculator is exactly the same, but it is a measure of Defects Per Million Opportunities, so rather than being expressed by a percentage it is multiplied by 1 million and expressed by the total estimated number of defect products.
